Apple Leisure Group Celebrates Groundbreaking of Two Dominican Republic Resorts

Apple Leisure Group is happy to report that construction has begun on two brand new all-inclusive resorts in Miches, Dominican Republic. Two of the 18 management deals secured by Apple Leisure Group in 2019, Secrets® Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana and Dreams® Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana are the first AMResorts-branded properties in this area.

Alejandro Reynal, CEO of Apple Leisure Group, commented:

“These new deals underscore ALG’s unwavering commitment to the Dominican Republic and the goal of participating in unique projects that benefit our investors as well as the surrounding communities. We will be working closely with our partners, as well as Miches residents, to ensure we exceed the expectations of the guests, while also bringing true, long-term value to the area.”

This news was celebrated at a groundbreaking ceremony attended by prominent government officials and local stakeholders. Plans for the new complex located on Playa Esmeralda were also revealed during this occasion. This development also represents a major opportunity for growth within the Dominican Republic tourism sector.

Playa Esmeralda will be composed of nearly 1,500 hotel units, as well as a shared promenade, where guests from all hotels can mingle and enjoy various resort amenities including a convention center, a theater, retail offerings, and a state-of-the-art fitness center and spa. The promenade will also offer diverse gourmet restaurants and high-end buffets.

The Secrets and Dreams-branded properties will each encompass 750 rooms and suites upon the initial phase, with 250 accommodations at each resort reserved exclusively for Preferred Club guests.

Secrets Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana will be an adults-only property with four different bars, four snack areas, and a private lounge area for Preferred Club members.

Dreams Playa Esmeralda Punta Cana will be a more family-friendly resort with three snack bars, four bars, a Preferred Club lounge, an Explorer’s Club for Kids, and a Core Zone Teen’s Club.

“Miches is poised to become one of the Dominican Republic’s top markets for all-inclusive resorts,” said Javier Coll, Executive Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer of ALG. “This area has been largely overlooked, despite its significant attributes; however, our team’s long history and proven experience in this market has allowed us to identify and move on this opportunity.”
